Hytera Mobilfunk finally signed the first contract for the renewal of the C2000 TETRA nationwide two-way radio network in the Netherlands. The deal was signed yesterday (17 June 2015) by representatives of the Ministry of Security and Justice and Matthias Klausing, CEO of Hytera Mobilfunk (pictured).
C2000 is the communications system for all emergency services in the Netherlands and will be renewed in the coming years. As one of the first nationwide TETRA systems to be deployed in Europe, the network has reached the end of life in terms of both the hardware and the software.
The renewal consists of three parts: Part 1 is provision of the voice network between control rooms and emergency services workers (T2000); Part 2 covers the paging network for the alarm system (P2000); and Part 3 contains the radio control for the control room.
On 5 March, Hytera Mobilfunk was provisionally awarded Part 1 of the C2000 contract. The signing of the contract yesterday means the provisionally award has been confirmed.
“We are more than happy that our hard and convincing work during the tender phase and providing the best offer led us to the award of the contract. We are looking forward to realizing the project in trustful partnership with the Ministry of Security and Justice, as well as with the winners of Part 2 and Part 3 of the tender,” said Klausing.
